Re-testing Options and Considerations
- Retesting is available for incoming students who score close to the next level. Speak to an advisor or counselor if you are concerned about your retest scores.
- It is recommended that students spend time preparing for the retake.
- You should not retest on the same section more than once. Remember, the goal is to have a solid foundation in reading, writing and math before you start your college-level courses.
